We had the good fortune to witness multiple wildebeest crossings of the Mara River while in Kenya. I’ll do a big photo presentation sometime in the coming weeks, but for now here is a general view to set the scene.
Each time the wildebeests contemplated crossing, crocodiles lined themselves up along the crossing route. They’re huge. They can literally be a ton o’ prehistoric monster, growing to a thousand kilos or more.
A few individual wildebeests were bound to fall as prey. In this first photo, with the croc coming up on the wildebeest from below, check out how huge his tail is compared to the poor beest.
